i wouldnt hesitate to recommend this cattery, the room at the back of the pen is lovely and warm (even when it was -3 outside!) the wooden climbing frame with the four different heights is a great addition! and just the little extra caring touches has made all the difference to me. -having to prove flea treatment and inoculations gave me piece of mind that all the cats in the cattery are healthy (the lady who was infront of me wasnt able to leave her cats because her two cats hadnt had the injections, the amount of the booking was very high! and yet the two cats couldnt be accepted, which although the lady was upset about i was impressed that the health/wellbeing of her cats and the other cats in the cattery where put first over the money) and even wanting me to take of her collar of when i brought her in for her own safety incase the buckle got stuck on the mesh was something i hadnt thought about. this is a cattery that really cares and the owners clearly love cats

excellent friendly cattery, other catterys i have visited in the past have never asked to see any evidence that a de-flea product has been used and have been pretty easy going with not having to see evidence of injections. this cattery is very strict and enforce all the rules they have which is one of the reasons i really like them. i know my cats are going to be safe here and that the staff care about them, they take alot of pride in their cattery

we'd never used a cattery before so we visited 7 different ones to make sure we chose the right place. we immediately knew that this was the right place the pens are very light and spacious and have lots to keep the cats entertained. we initially wanted to do a trial run for 2 nights to see how they settled in before leaving them for 3 weeks however this was the first place who actually recommended against doing this unless we were going away and it was necessary, they explained that it can usually take cats (especially first time users of a cattery) around 4 or so days to settle in so it wasnt worth putting them in for such a short amount of time because they probably wouldnt settle in as well, so it wouldnt be worth putting them under unnecessary stress. as soon as we heard this we knew this was the right place and the right people to leave our cats with. the hours everyday you put into your cattery and the time you give our cats really shows and as cat parents we wanted to thank you for this, you make going away and leaving them that little bit easier

We have used this place twice now for our young cats. Both times they have come home happy and well looked after. The owners clearly care about cats don't have a large staff so the your cat don't have a large number of people to get used to. The rooms are great with two different areas, climbing centres and good views. We will be definitely using this place again in future when we go away.

Donald had a two week holiday at the pets country manor, I was so upset and anxious about leaving him for that amount of time as he has never been away from home for that long and gets unsettled quite easily.. when we picked Donald up he was so calm and relaxed like he had never been away, he looked like he enjoyed his two week all inclusive maybe putting on a pound or two ?. I would certainly recommend the pets country manor, the staff are so friendly and have a genuine love for cats.

Picked up Honey and Ginge after there 3 week stay. They look amazing and are so relaxed and settled straight back in at home, which tells me they've been very happy and content the last few weeks. Thank you so much for your care for our fur babies. Worth every penny. Would highly recommend.

Just collected Poppy and Dolce from their second stay at the Pets Country Manor. They are well looked after, and always come back looking like they've been pampered all the time! Thank you for looking after our fur-babies!

This cattery was brilliant. They treated my cat as if she was their own. She came back spotless, the owners have really looked after her.
I would definitely be using this place again.
They kept me updated whilst I was away abroad.

Great cattery with lovely clean rooms. Cats get an indoor heated room, and an outdoor space with multiple levels. Personal diets and grooming regimes are catered for, and they even do a pick up and drop off service.

Thank you for looking after Peter so well. It was his second visit to PCM and we wouldn't leave him with anyone else - you're amazing! Thank you xx
Bethani Sherer reviewed The Pets Country Manor — 5 star July 18, 2016 ·
Our gorgeous cat Beau stayed for a week recently. He was only turning 1 the week we came back and hadn't stayed anywhere before so we were quite apprehensive about leaving him (not to mention sad that we wouldn't see him for a whole week!) but there was nothing to worry about. Apart from not liking the car journey home and being really cuddly every time he saw me for the next few days, he came home a contented and happy cat, going straight back to watching the mice in the shed wondering when he would be able to catch one! We've booked him in for our holiday next year already and I would recommend this cattery to anyone.
Katie Gleave reviewed The Pets Country Manor — 5 star July 17, 2016 ·
Tuppence has just come back from her first holiday at Pets Country Manor and she couldn't look better. We've tried many other catteries before, fortunately, coming across PCM. I'm so glad we did. She was so much more relaxed and happier when we picked her up on Thursday than she ever has been on previous occasions from other catteries. She was the picture of health, beautiful shiny coat and the same chubby tummy she went in with. Its so nice to have found somewhere that looks after her so well so we can enjoy our time away without worrying about her. She's already booked in for 2 more holidays later this year. Thank you Pets Country Manor

Have used the Pet Country Manor a few times, I have been to others and not a patch on this. Would always use them ,they are genuine animal lovers and although a little bit more expensive it worth ever penny knowing that your little one is happy ,safe and on their own holiday. Also this time I was away for 3 weeks just seeing them on screen puts your mind at rest so you can also enjoy your time away too happy cats = people
Jayne Primmer reviewed The Pets Country Manor — 5 star July 12, 2016 ·
Thank you so much for your excellent care of Solo while we were away. This is the first time we have left him and I was so worried that he would feel we were abandoning him, but I needn't have worried because he has been so well looked after, and I'm sure he will be missing you now! We are so happy to know that next time we go away we will have someone for him to stay with who we can trust to take such good care of him and make him so welcome.

I was very apprehensive about leaving tigger for the first time, we put her here for 12 days and she was absolutely fine, came back a happier cat. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Jude Worthington reviewed The Pets Country Manor — 5 star June 25, 2016 ·
Just this minute got Blaze home - he protested so much in the car on way home I think he wanted to stay! It was his first time in a cattery so I was a little worried but didn't need to be! I think its clear he loved it - as soon as I let him out of basket he ignored his old sister Amy and headed straight for a second breakfast - and now he has gone up for a snooze on my bed! Thanks very much for taking such good care of him, I'm sure he will be back sometime in future!

Just collected Marlon and Millie after their fourth holiday at Country Manor. Thanks Vicky and Craig for caring for them so well. I would recommend your cattery above any other. You get to know each and every guest and obviously love cats as much as we do!
Sarah Butterfield reviewed The Pets Country Manor — 5 star August 19, 2017 ·
This was the third time our cat Milo has stayed and for a longer time than before. He was extremely well looked after and came home a very content cat. We amended the dates before our booking and you couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you so much for your care for cats and anxious owners. We can't wait to go away again next year knowing he is so happy with you. Highly recommended.

Just want to say a huge thank you for looking after Bella and Pudgey for the last 3 weeks. I was so nervous pitting them in a cattery as they are 10 and never been away from me for that long. I did not need to worry about them at all. Fantastically looked after and they were happy as Larry. Would definitely recommend anyone to put there cats here.
Oiyi Pereira Filipe reviewed The Pets Country Manor — 5 star March 21, 2017 ·
Definately recommend to every cat lovers. As we are anxious cat owners, a warm welcome and a good introductory really helps us to settle our worries of putting our lovely girl Sabrina in a cattery. We had bad experience of using other cattery before, we can tell Sabrina is way more relax and settled when i picked her up from the cattery and took her home this time. She was very energetic, relax and happy. And we can tell everyone from pets country manor does pay good attention and take good care of all the lovely cats there in which gives us confidence to put our lovely girl there. My husband and i will definately use pets country manor again. And we also bought a lovely toy from there as well. Sabrina loves it very much. Overall, we had a very positive experience with pets country manor

My 3 cats Charlie , Pickle and Flossie all spent Christmas with Craig and Vicky . They were so well looked after . I have used other catteries but they dont compare . I had peace of mind knowing they were in a lovely safe place. The little Xmas present was a nice touch they are still playing with them??

Hi Craig and Vicki, Our furbaby Missy has been at home for a week now having stayed at the Cat Manor for just under two weeks.We were so anxious and worried about leaving Missy as she had been abandoned by her previous owners.We didn't want her to feel like that......we didn't have to worry, Missy has returned to us, very well cared for and has been a very relaxed cat,and the whole experience hasn't fazed her at all. That's down to the sheer care and dedication that the two of you put into looking after our baby.

Just like to say we really appreciate you looking after snowy for the last week. We have not had him long and were a little worried about leaving him.
There was absolutely nothing for us to worry about, the place you have and dedication you both put in, shows just how much care you give to all the animals you look after, therefore gives us the confidence he would be looked after they way we wanted. The daily updates of pics and videos on facebook, were great and probably let us enjoy our holiday even more. Definitely a 5 ? facility and we will be seeing you in the future. Many thanks and again appreciate what you did.
Keven, Lisa and Snowy Hamilton

I'd recommend PCM to anybody looking for a friendly, caring place to leave their pets when they're away. Easy booking and the facebook posts and postcard are a great touch that set it apart from other places. I think our guinea pigs enjoyed their holiday just as much as we did!

We were not looking forward to leaving our 2 cats & 2 rabbits. It was the first time we have left them but I must say how pleased we are for choosing this fantastic cattery. All our pets are now settled back at home looking fantastic and NO sulking. All happy fur babies. Would most definitely recommend this place and will use them again. The photos & videos mean so much whilst you are away and put your mind at ease at how happy your pets are. Thanks for doing an excellent job. Bella,Thomas,Tilly & Gizmo

My 8 year old moggie had never been in a cattery before and due to health issues needed a special type of cattery which I found in The Pets Country Manor. I think I was more stressed than Boots when I dropped him off with tons of his 'luggage' duly labelled with instructions / requirements. I actually think he had a better holiday than me and did not seem that keen to leave when I came to collect him! A very well deserved thank you to you both and appreciated the postcard and updates. See you in September.

Absolutely delighted with the care our 9 month old bunny Apple received! He was suffering with a lame leg and needed Metacam, but this wasn't a problem for The Pets Country Manor! He was closely watched and we got regular updates.
The kennels are absolutely pristine, relaxing and quiet.
It was great to check on him while we were away with daily pictures, and a video on the Facebook page. We even came home from our holiday to a postcard from Apple
Would recommend without hesitation!
See you next year

To say we were anxious to leave our 16 week old kitten Humbug for a week was an understatement, but Pets Country Manor totally put our minds at ease. The grounds are fantastic, clean and the staff are lovely and caring and understood our anxieties about leaving our kitten for the first time.
We got to take Humbug to his own room, which came with a large climbing frame and separate " en suite " while we are away I got to see Humbug on Facebook and received a post card on our return from him :)
Humbug enjoyed his stay, we enjoyed our break and will defo be using Pets County Manor in the future.

can't recommend The Pets Country Manor high enough. My daughter wasn't entirely sure about going on holiday and leaving her beloved cat until we found the UK's number one cattery. From the fist enquiry you could tell the love for animals that this entrepreneurial couple have. With daily photos and a couple of videos my daughter had a lovely holiday safe in the knowledge her cat was safe and sound and enjoying his holiday. On collection it was clear he had been spoilt looking well groomed and bright eyed.
Well done Pets Country Manor you deserve all the accolades you are currently enjoying

Thank you so much for looking after Buddy, our British Blue cat so well. Very high care and service was given to Buddy & his family, your experience and professionalism shows through. My mind was at rest with the lovely Facebook updates. Buddy will return for his holidays with you next time.
What a fantastic holiday home for pets, my two came back full of beans and had been very well cared for, I have booked again as so pleased with the care and the lovely touch of a post card from both of them was lovely. Please vote for these lovely people who obviously care passionately about those left in their charge xxxx
Vicky thank you so much for looking after our Fred for what turned out to be almost 2 months whilst our flat was being renovated after being damaged by a severe leak. We were devastated at not having our little munch with us every day as we had to go and live in temporary B&Bs which didn't allow cats but you totally put our minds at ease that he was going to be looked after. Even as it got to near-capacity at Pets Country Manor you told us not to worry and that Fred had a spot should he need it as week after week we were again told that we couldn't yet go home. Your videos and daily photos of Fred looking happy and well looked after made us feel secure in the knowledge that our little kitty was safe and well. We finally took him home today and he is so relaxed and just chilling out on the sofa with us. He's usually such a skitty cat but after his initial meowly ten minutes (which he always does when we come home regardless of whether he's been on his holidays) he just settled right back into being at home. You love the cats in your care as if they are your own. That's why you're so special and why we'd never leave Fred anywhere else. Thank you so much.

Thanks once again for looking after me so well whilst my humans were away - I am quite a regular at the Pets Country Manor but I can now be left more as my minders know that I will be well looked after by you both and that I won't fret. They tell me I have come home looking fit and healthy and stress free! Thanks again, can't wait to see you both soon, Tilly x PS: I loved the photos of me that you put on Facebook!
Thank you craig and Vicky for taking such good care of Charlie last week.

Thank you so much for looking after Fizz, Angel and Demmy. They almost looked disappointed to be home. I have loved seeing pictures and videos of them while I have been away and felt very at ease knowing they had lots of space to run wild. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone with a cat or small animal in the future!
Wonderful, personal service - like leaving my cat with family. Lovely to get photos and a postcard of her 'holiday' which made leaving her over Christmas much more bearable. She even came home with a little Christmas stocking! Thank you both, I can't recommend you highly enough.
Thank you so so much for looking after Poppy and Nacho for us while we were on holiday, they have come back happy and more loving than ever! The post card was such a lovely thought, thank you!!!! Seeing their pics and videos on Facebook really did put my mind at rest, although next time I need to go somewhere where there is free wifi, dreading my phone bill, but it was worth every penny to see them happy!! I will definitely recommend the pets country manor to everyone I know. Thank again, Poppy and Nacho would love to come back next time we book a holiday I'm sure xxxx sep 2013

Thank you once again for looking after Bertie when we were away this weekend. We are so grateful for the care and attention he receives at Pets Country Manor, we are able to leave him knowing he is in safe hands. Best wishes Hilary Lloyd kiss from Bertie x
I popped into the Country Manor without an appointment on Wednesday, I was made very welcome & was given a tour of the facilities there & then. I was so impressed, this is most certainly the place for my furbaby; the owner knew every guest by name & I could feel how passionate he was about them all. I was so worried about leaving our girlie for the first time but having visited, I am sure she will be fine. Thank you so much for putting my mind at rest.
John & Vicki thanks once again for looking after Oliver. He has finally fallen asleep he's been pampered by you both all week. You do an amazing job and I don't know what we would do without you both. Thanks guys xxxx. And the offer still stands about the gardening too. Ill be free of charge x

Thank you very much for looking after Beko on his recent stay - he has come back very happy and he's already looking forward to booking in for his next visit next year Thanks again and see you soon Ben & Lil
What a wonderful country retreat for our animals. After my visit I just knew I had to leave Roxy + Miley with you. Its all those touches you have like being able to view them while away and getting a card on my return home adds to the fact they are also having a great holiday as well as me They actually look like they have had a enjoyable break. Im sure they are looking forward to coming back very soon. Thanks X

They miss you very much! see you in august

there and then.
I wouldn't take them anywhere else
Our cat Sid enjoyed his stay with you last weekend, its the first time we have left him at pets country manor and we were very impressed by the whole set up, you really do think of everything and all the personal extras such as the photos on Facebook and the postcard home just adds that extra to the service, thanks again, Charlotte Brookes and Greg Brookes

John & Vicky have looked after Sonny & Daisy for the last 3 years and they always come home looking like they've spent 2 weeks at a spa - all sleek and happy The pictures/videos were the highlight of our day as the 1st thing we did was look out for them.

Hi John and Vicky, Thank you so much for looking after Rosie for the past week. She is content and happy and judging by the pics, videos and postcard she had a great time on her holiday! I would definitely recommend your service to friends and family. It is great to see pics/ vids of your pet when you are away and know that they are in safe hands. It really sets your cattery apart from others. The pick up/ drop off service is great too. Thanks again and best wishes, Debbie :-) 03/05/12
I just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after Harlow and Hugo. The rabbits have settled straight back in and clearly they enjoyed their time at your hotel. The price we paid was very reasonable and we already have them booked back in. Highly recommend to anyone who needs a small animal hotel. The collection and drop off service is brilliant. 02/05/12
Hi John & Vicky Thank you for looking after Sox again. She always enjoys her stays with you although this time she was under the bed most of the time. Not to worry though she does this at home. Most of her day is spent under one of the beds in the house and I think she likes to think of it as a den and somewhere to hide from us. Thank you once again and we will be using you again soon. Carole Stukley 01/05/12

Thank you again and the high praise and recommendation will continue through us now as well. 5 star in every aspect.. Thanks Kerr Family & Jasper 18/04/12
Dear Vicky and John As my granny and grandad, who are presently looking after me don't have Facebook, I am having to send you an email but I hope you will put it on your reviews. Thank you for looking after me so well for the last five days. I have had a wonderful holiday and thought the Cattery Hotel was well worth the five star rating. I could not have been better looked after if they had booked me in the Savoy. The VIC suite was everything which a cat could want, very pampered I was too with all the fuss and the bed, well that was really something. I liked the view from my window so that I could watch the birds. The food was Master Chef standard, so well prepared and presented just to my liking. My mum who is at present on holiday in New Zealand was even able to see me on the web cam and I can't wait to show her the card which I sent her when she gets back, a fine photograph of me it was too! The en suite facilities were second to none and I will certainly make sure that my feline friends tell their owners that there is only one place to go on holiday - yes its the Bowring Park Luxury Cattery. A big MEOW to you both and hope I will make a return visit. Gerry 16/04/12
Tufty's first holiday away from home and she is an OLD lady, back today and she seems to have enjoyed herself! Thanks John for looking after her. 14/04/12

Hey guys! Sorry it has taken me so long to say this but i just wanted to say the biggest thank you ever for looking after my Roger whilst I was away! I can see that he has a lovely time! When he came back he was sulking a little at me and I think this is because he was missing you both! Such a fantastic service you provide and I will be in touch again soon to get them booked in for our next hol! Hope all is well with you both and I hope the lovely Monica is still doing well! Thank you again and speak to you soon! X 12/04/12

Thank you again for looking after Bambi so well. She enjoyed her holiday with you! Only just got to see her pics on fb as the internet connection on holiday wasn't very good, but we weren't worried as we knew she was safe and well looked after with you. Would highly reccommend you to anyone. 10/04/12
I went on holiday and placed my cat in the care of bowring park catteryhotel, my cat is very nervous and sensitive as he has never been in a cattery before, l was worried that he might pine and go off his food. But that wasn't the case,he was looked after to the most highest standard . I want to thank john and vicky for all the love and attention they gave my Bobbyboo and it was great seeing pictures of him on Facebook having a good time playing with his toys. It gave me peace of mind knowing that he was safe and happy,I had a good holiday 07/04/12
Thanks so much for looking after the boys so well and for grooming them! xx 04/04/12

Thank you for looking after Beaky so well. His pick-up and drop-off were both precisely on time, and you called first just like you promised. We will definitely use you again (in both May and June!) and recommend you to friends. Maybe next time Beaky will be a bit more outgoing! 02/04/12

Thank you very much for looking after Naboo so well, I was very worried about putting him into a cattery for the first time but have to say you were wonderful and put my mind completely at ease. The videos and pictures posted on facebook were a wonderful extra touch and it was nice to see Naboo settling in so well. I'll definitely be using you again in the future when/if I need to. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Big thank you to John and Vicky from me and Naboo! :) 30/03/12
couldn't come away not knowing they were ok, would highly recommend the Cattery to everyone with pets !! We get up in the morning and look for the pics ahhhhhxxxxxx 30/03/12
Thank you for looking after Ollie and Tuppence for me- it was a relief to know I didn't have to worry about them and to know they were being so well cared for 24/03/12
My wife and I have used John and Vicky's Cattery service for some time now. We always try and choose a VIC suite for Suki because she loves to look out of a window during the day. Leaving your cat in the hands of someone else can be nerve racking, it certainly made us feel anxious before we met John. I cannot say enough about this Cattery. John and Vicky will pick Suki up and drop her off. They will play with Suki and fuss over her. They will take pictures and videos and upload them onto Facebook and most of all make sure she is warm, safe and have plenty of food and drink. This Cattery comes with our highest recommendation. Thank God for John and Vicky, they do a great job! 29/02/12
thank you for taking such good care of princess again. she looks so relaxed and happy. 18/03/12
Thanks very much for looking after Tiggs and providing a very professional service. Tiggs is looking forward to his next stay already. 17/03/12

Thanks again guys for taking such brilliant care of archie, I know I never have to worry about him because you're so lovely - I'm just sorry he breaks all your toys! xxxxx
Thank you so much for looking after Filbert so well. We were a bit worried as this was his first time away from home, but he's returned looking healthy and happy and seems to have enjoyed his stay. Thank you for uploading pics and videos to facebook - it was great to see him looking so happy and well cared for; we were particularly pleased to see that he received cuddles, attention and playtime - particularly important for Ragdolls who just crave love and attention all the time! Thank you! We will be recommending you far and wide.
Filbert says: thank you for having me and for helping me to write my postcard to my mummy and daddy. I hope I will be able to stay with you again the next time they go on holiday because I enjoyed it a lot. 05/03/12
The Bowring Park Luxury Cattery is one of our best finds, Bella has stayed there several times now and always comes back happy and relaxed. We have already booked her next stay and we know she will be safe & well cared for and being able to see her pictures and video while we are away is so reassuring...Thank you so much for your excellent service
Our 2 cats Rocky and James enjoyed a 2 night 'mini break' at this fabulous cattery. They were cared for so well while they were there - loved the photos and video on Facebook and the children loved the postcard the cats brought home with them telling us all about their stay! Wont hesitate to send them here again. Thanks John & Vicky for looking after our boys so well x 21/02/2012
just want to say how happy we were that our beloved bunny Harry was so well cared for whilst we were away. He has returned home healthy,happy, bright eyed and spotless. I would not and have not hesitated in rebooking him in for another stay. To follow him on facebook and watch the videos was of great comfort to me as he looked like he was enjoying himself. He says he cannot wait to get back to the Sandles Resort that is Bowring Park Hotel!!!!!!
Our cat Domino came back to us happy and cared for well again this year, a lovely friendly service which you can see again 27/12/2011
whoa... by far the best move we made when we decided on a cattery over xmas for nobbles and minxy.... superb! 28/12/2011
Having used other catteries we found this cattery to be exceptional. The care along with the attention given to each animal was fantastic and we intend to carry on using them in the future. I would highly recommend this cattery to anyone wishing to board there cat while going on holiday. 27/12/2011
Would just like to say a big "thank you" for looking after Tibby while we have been away on holiday. I am sure she has had a relaxing time just as much as we have! Its been great to see pictures and videos of her. Looking forward to seeing her back at home tomorrow. :) Thanks again, Helen and Keith xx
Woody settled back at home...and it wasn't long before he was scratching at the door to go outside.....he seems very happy...so next time we go away he will be going on his holidays to you...thankyou very much for looking after him so well and I enjoyed my holiday knowing he was looked after really well in the warm and comfort of your hotel :) 28 November at 15:17
Thank you so much for looking after Karter, We loved seeing the pictures and video on line and that special touch of sending a photo through the post was just great, he came home this morning so content and happy and is now settled asleep on the sofa between Sasha and I. Thanks again and you will be seeing Karter many time in the future! xxx
Can I just say i think this place is amazing, looked after Simba extremely well, I even think he didn't really want to come home, knowing he was happy and being able to see him getting up to his antics on facebook set my mind at rest, even down to the nice picture we received on our return from holiday was a nice welcome. I will be using again, safe in the knowledge that Simba will be very happy on his next holiday!! recommendation is of the highest from me and would like to thank you once again for looking after simba he appreciated it as well xxx

Sorry it's taken us so long to post this! Just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of Eevie (the rabbit) and Gem and Leo (the guinea pigs). Also for posting the videos and pictures, it was a great relief being able to check up on them while we were away and the postcard was a really nice touch xx (Gorgeous halloween photos by the way)
Thanks guys for taking good care of our Lily!!! She's been a little angel since she's come back! x x
Excellent service, they looked after my pets very well and they came home happy having enjoyed their stay. I loved being able to see my pets via pics & videos whilst away and had been worried as this was their 1st time away from home but therevwere no problems. Postcards were a lovely touch and the collection and drop-off service is really convienent. I wouldn't hesitate to book my cats & rabbits in again next time we go away and I would highly recommend you to others. Thanks very much :)
We have used the Bowring Park Cattery on two recent occassions and would highly recommend them. The service provided is excellent and being able to see our Bella on her "holiday" whilst we were away really put our minds at rest. The pick up and delivery service provided is an added advantage and so reliable. We had never used a cattery before for various reasons but now would not hesitate to have Bella looked after here in fact we are already planning to book her in for her "holidays" next year. Thank you so much for looking after Bella and giving us the peace of mind to allow us to relax and enjoy our holidays. Best wishes Teresa, Norman & Bella.
Would just like to say a massive thank you to John and Vicky for looking after my two cats, Jack and Maisie, whilst I was on holiday. The service provided is brilliant and you would be hard pushed to find a better cattery...anywhere! It was fantastic to be able to see Jack and Maisie enjoying their stay on the videos on Facebook....very reassuring! And the lovely little 'postcard' from them awaiting my return was a lovely surprise! Both cats where pleased to be home but am sure they really did enjoy their 'holiday' as well! Thanks a million, will definitely be using cattery again. Sandra (and Jack and maisie!) x
We highly recommend Bowring Park Cattery!!! Thanks ever so much to John and Vicky for the excellent care of Andy and Buxton, our two kitties. This was the third time for Andy staying there, the first for Buxton. So nice to be able to see their photos and videos on Facebook while we are away, just one of the many services provided. Best of all is knowing we do not have to worry about our babies as we are confident they are being the best of care. John and vicky give all their ‘residents’ personal attention –they don’t just put your pets in cages and feed them, they actually play with them, pet them and ensure your babies are comfortable. And have to say the pick up and delivery service is much appreciated. We will definetly use Bowring again and again and recommend this place to all of our family and friends. Thanks again John and Vicky!!! P.s. to Vicky the i-pad 2 is amazing!!!
Thank you guys so much for taking such great care of our Andy and Buxton. We are sitting here at home now anxiously awaiting their return!!!! Thank you also for posting their photos!!!!
I have never left my 2 cats in a cattery before, they have always been looked after by my dad so I was more than a little apprehensive to leave them ... in hindsight I need not have worried as they were well taken care of ... received both love and attention and the postcard we recevied was a nice little touch, will have no hesitation in sending them there next time ... thank you.
never before have i seen such care and kindness been given to animals by the two owners of bowring park small animal hotel. not only were they able to fit my two bunnies in last minute, but they were also value for money and offered extra s...ervices that you would just not find else where such as pamper sessions and a free pick up service which just took the stress out of going on holiday. my rabbits returned to me today being dropped off at the exact time promised, and let me just say, they have never looked so good! they were in immaculate condition and smelt beautiful after their pamper session and were completely groomed to perfection. i would highly recconmend you only chose this wonderful business to look after your animals. i would never use any one else again( believe me i have used other people before, i got the impression they wernt ever let out of their cage the full week i was away.) with bowring park you have peace of mind, and when you are missing your babies, you can just log on and find up to date photographs and videos to assure you of their well maintained conditions and the fun they are having and the care and attention they are being shown. the final touch was returning from holiday, to find a postcard with a beautiful picture of the two of them posted through my door. touches like this put this business on another level from other animal carers. this is not just a business, you can tell this is their way of life, and that the owners genuinely love every animal that has been put under their care. many thanks again to both.

Hi, Thank you to all the Staff at Bowring Park for looking after Leo, he seems happy, healthy and well looked after. Also thanks for the photo you sent out & keeping us informed with videos & Pictures of him here on Facebook. We would recommend this Cattery to other people with Cats & small Animals when they go off on there holidays. Bye from Erine, Cindy & Katrina Ramos ƒº
Just wanted to say thanks again and reiterate what people are saying below. Great service, which I would happily use again, and recommend to friends. Lovely to see photos and movies of the cats. x 30 September at 17:31
This was first time I've put the cat in a cattery and I wouldn't have any hesitation to use them again. They picked up Molly and dropped her off and obviously looked after her well as they knew all about her and what she liked etc. I would definitely use them again and recommend them! x
Richard Edmondson 24 September at 05:35
I couldn’t be more pleased with the service the Bowring Park Cattery provides. It’s wonderful to be able to see pictures of your cat while you are on holiday / away from home via Facebook. The staff are always friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. You know you’re cat’s being well looked after and that’s excellent peace of mind. I don’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs their cat looking after while they are away.
Charlotte Mcbride 20 September at 15:09
Thank you so much for taking care of Typzie and Hugo. Was great to have piece of mind while on holiday that they were getting looked after. Would definitely use you again next time we go away. Was lovely to be able to go on facebook while away and see photos and videos of them enjoying their holiday. Would recommend you to everyone :) Thanks again from Charlotte, Rob, Typzie and Hugo

Fantastic place, great service. John and Vicky work so hard and put up with all our paranoias about our bunnies, nothing is too much trouble . Love following their (the buns) holiday on Facebook, I hate leaving them behind but they are well cared for, loved and enjoy their holiday too. The new outdoor rabbit play pens are brilliant. Would recommend to anyone scared about leaving their pets behind - you can tell it is not just a business, they care about their fluffy clients too! x Thank you John and Vicky

Fantastic service! Can't fault John and Vicky, would reccommend to anyone. Liked the pics and videos on FB, a very nice touch especially for a 4 year old who was missing her bunnies. The postcard was lovely as well. Just got 2 very happy, contented bunnies back, think they enjoyed their holiday as much as we did :) Thank you!
Michelle Peter 02 September at 14:06
Thank you so much for looking after my cats Jasper and Tilly. It was so lovely to see regular photos of them and videos on facebook to reassure me that they were doing well without me. John and Vicky are wonderful and it is so nice to know that the cats are in safe hands! xx
Amy Lynd 31 August at 19:41
Put our buns in for 2 weeks. Think they enjoyed their holiday as much as we did. Excellent service, very profesional and friendly. Loved the regular photos and videos, and postcard we recieved was a really nice touch. They have arrived back looking happy and healthy (not even their usual stamping when they got back). I will definately be using them again.

They both look brilliant and have obviously had a lovely time.Being able to watch them on Facebook made a huge difference and I really looked forward to catching up with them when I could get a connection.

Just wanted to say thank you for looking after Amber, Gizmo and Mr B while we were all away. Amber and Gizmo seem to have really enjoyed their holiday as they have settled straight back into life at home. We all enjoyed being able to see the cats during our holiday and it made it so much easier knowing they were all being looked after and cared for. We would recommend you to anyone and will certainly be using you again when we next go away. Thank you again xx
Rachel Horrocks 09 August at 17:37

Tom Tjp Ponsonby 30 July at 13:41
Just to say thank you so much for taking care of Bailey. He looks like he had a great time & has been really happy to stay with you. This was his first stay at a cattery & we were a little concerned but being able to see your photos & videos of him whilst we were away was very reassuring. Very highly recommended!!
Claire Jackson 30 July at 12:52
Thank you so much for looking after Trilby. We've only had him a few months so I was worried about leaving him for the first time, but I could tell how happy he was from the photos and videos on here. They really were a great comfort, being able to see for myself that he was doing ok. The drop off service was also excellent, it was great knowing that when we got home we didn't need to worry abo...ut driving out to pick him up, we could just get ourselves sorted while we waited for him to come home. And I really appreciated the postcode from him when we got home, it's now got pride of place on the fridge. It's little touches like that that make all the difference. We'll definitely be coming back to you when we next go away!
Scott Evans 14 July at 15:54
Thank you to John and Vicky for taking such great care of Oliver and Ruby. We always have supreme confidence in Bowring Park Luxury Cattery and know that our cats are enjoying excellent care. John was even able to return Oliver and Ruby at a moment's notice when we returned home early. Fantastic service.
Now Oliver would like to say a few words:
Deer John and Vicky - fank yoo for looking after us while the Beans were away. We had a great time and enjoyed looking owt at Berd TV through the window. Love from Oliver and Ruby xx
PS. Ruby says she got some nice head scritches and chin rubs.
Angela Hearne 14 July at 01:24
Thank you so much for looking after Sooty we were very happy with the fact we were able to see how he had settled in with you, also i thought it was lovely the way we got a picture in the post for when we got home. once again thank you so much. x
Laura Megan Smith 11 July at 10:56
Absolutely brilliant, I couldn't send my cats anywhere else - you can tell how much everyone in the cattery genuinely loves animals, they're so kind and lovely. Can't thank you all enough xxxx
Cheryl Lowe 05 July at 16:25
Just like to say a big thank you to John & Vicki for looking after Molly Lowe, she really enjoyed her stay with you. Keep up the good work! Thanks again x
Jodie Powell 25 June at 19:20

Being able to see photos of them on facebook is amazing and really sets your mind at ease so thanks again to John and Vicky for an excellent service See you again, Jodie
Joyce Forrest 18 June at 11:23
Rio is 12 and this was his first visit to a cattery, so obviously we were concerned as we also were worried he would be stressed. After visiting John and Vicky at their cattery we knew this was the best place for him to have a 2 week holiday also. Back home yesterday- John brought him home to us, after a very brief settling in period he was back to normal, and did not "hate us" ha ha for putting h...im into a cattery as an older cat !! John and Vicky have given him the care, love, hugs and attention that we have always given Rio since we got him at 12 weeks old, so his holiday with them was just like a stay with extended family. The fact we could see photos and video of Rio whilst on hols was also a reassuring aspect of the excellent care he recieved. A final extra lovely touch was the postcard photo from Rio that was waiting for us when we arrived home yesterday morning, even before we got Rio back- this was superb ! So a big thanks to John and Vicky- we highly recommend anyone to use this cattery/small animal hotel, as like us they absolutely love animals and we will definately use you ongoing now- love Joyce & Geoff Forrest xxSee more
Moira Fitzsimmons 09 June at 10:21
If you have any doubts at all about leaving your pet with someone, this is the place to do it. John and Vicky have built a genuinely warm, friendly, caring and most importantly safe enviroment for all the pets left in their care. Each one is as important as the next, which is reassuring for any owner. Our Bunnies were returned to us happy, calm and content. We enjoyed checking in, here on facebook for regular updates on them, which is a genius idea and Melissa loved the postcard she received in the post. Infact she carries it everywhere with her. Thanks again to you both for the excellent care you took of Amber and Lexi, we will definately be booking in again next year.
Diane Williams 08 June at 12:37
Just want to say many thanks for the great care Bibby received with you. This was his first time in a cattery and we were worried he would be stressed. It was great to see regular photo updates of him, and even videos, while we were away. We could see that he got very good care and lots of attention from you, and he came back confident and rather spoilt! :-) Thanks to you both, will see you again.
Lynne McDonald 25 May at 21:46
This was the first time we had left our rabbit Jasmine and cat Oscar with anyone before while we went on holiday.John was very re-assuring that they would be okay and they were.We could check in on Facebook while we were in Spain and it was lovely to see videos and photos of them.They both looked relaxed and happy.It was lovely to see Jasmine out in the sunshine and she was very safe in her run.Os...car can be a bit of a minx but he looked as though he had settled in fine.It was a nice thought also to send us a postcard with photos of them for when we got back home!The suites that the cats are in are spotless, nice and clean and spacious.We would definitely bring them back next time we go away.Thanks very much John and Vicky for taking care of our pets.See more
Lilian Molyneux 27 April at 13:09
Thanks to John and Vicky for looking after Charlie and Pickle so well...They were truly professional and lovely people..I was a bit wary about leaving the cats as this was there first time away but I needn't have worried. John picked them up at the arranged time and brought them back again when he said he would. Pictures were posted on facebook and they even put a little video of them so I could see they were ok. And to top it off they even got a little cats easter egg when they were brought home!!!! I will definitely take them back again in the future knowing they are safe and well looked after . A first class experience for me and the cats xx
Eileen Quinn 02 April at 12:55
It's clear that John and Vicky are true animal lovers and make every effort to make their guests comfortable and happy. We were nervous about the Boys' 1st stay away from home but we will definitely be back! xxx
Louise Ward 03 March at 12:22
Thanks for the 5 star treatment .. the cats came back happy and well - service provided excellent
Kim Edwards 20 December 2010 at 16:30
I can't thank you enough for taking such great care of Rafeal! This cattery is unbelievable, its immaculatly clean, large spacious pens full of toys, and John and Vicky have a true passion for animals. When Rafeal came home i could see he had been well cared for and had had lots of cuddles and attention he had also had a really good groom. Receiving the photo postcard was also such a lovely touch and this facebook page is a great idea i didnt need to worry about him at all as i could see he was having a great time! Thank you for the xmas card and thanks again! i can now start going on holidays again!!
Hollie Williams 27 September 2010 at 18:42
Thanks for looking after Dixie for us! The facilities are wonderful and the cats are looked after so well. Dixie will definitely be returning in the future. I loved that you posted videos on facebook for us to see when we were away and the postcard was a lovely surprise. Thanks again from Hollie & Danny.
Laura Nelson 07 September 2010 at 08:50
THIS PLACE IS AMAZING! Kitkat loved her holiday and we even got a postcard from her! Vicky and John are very friendly and obviously have a love of animals. The accomodation is truly five star and the pictures of Kitkat on facebook on her four poster bed really helped put our minds at rest that she was having a lovely time which in turn made us able to enjoy our holiday! Thank you so much Bowring Park Luxury Cattery :) Kitkat said she's looking forward to seeing you again at easter Meow
Katherine Buxton 06 September 2010 at 20:01
i had to wait 3 weeks to get an appointment to view this cattery and i couldnt be more pleased that i went ahead and waited. Once i'd read their terms and conditions and they had explained to me about the restrictions from the council i understood why i had to have an appointment and needed to wait for the next one. My cat is 17 years old and has been to many different catteries in merseyside but ...this is by far the best by a long way. The pens are really spacious and are immaculate and when harry came home he was so relaxed it was like he'd never been away- usually he sulks! I phoned john everyday and he completely put my mind at rest and i liked it that they had no staff so i knew it would just be john and his wife looking after him. they come highly recommendedSee more
Barbara Deeley 06 September 2010 at 19:39
Thank you so much for looking after Pebbles she has come home and is so happy-which is unusual for her! lol We loved the postcode we got when we came home that was such a lovely touch! and the facebook page is brilliant Grace loved being able to watch the videos of her we cant recommend you highly enough! great cattery and great service. Thank you John and Vicky -See you at christmas!
Arbitrary Larry 13 August 2010 at 18:49
Great friendly service, lovely premises, and so many extras like facebook etc. All helped us so much to cope with letting our kitties go for a few days!! Will definitely be booking them in again when we go away.
Joanne Howe 08 August 2010 at 17:52
JOANNE HOWE, We where a bit nervous at first trying to find a place for our cat 'SHERRY' we where able to go on holiday with peace of mind when we found john and vicky what a great team,this is highly recomended and we would use them over and over 'SHERRY' came back to us very content that made us happy, Thanx john + vicky xx ... C you next time.
Mandy McLachlan 21 July 2010 at 13:03
It really is great to have peace of mind, to be able to go on holiday and enjoy it, knowing that your cat is safe and well cared for. I don't know what i'd do without this cattery - it really is excellent. Thank you John and Vicky! Xx
Lynn-Marie Bridge16 July 2010 at 18:08
Above and beyond, this is the first time we have left Kitty and woudn't hesitate to do so again, we even arrived home from holiday to a photograph postcard of kitty letting us know she was having great fun, and excellent that u can check on facebook to see how they are doing while u are away from home, thank you John and Vicky xx
Claire Pearce14 July 2010 at 13:39
Excellent - can't rate it highly enough!! We use the small animal hotel regularly for our 2 bunnies. It's good to know they are being well looked after & the facebook updates are fab. Thanks John & Vicky!
Suzannah Harwood 11 June 2010 at 16:43
this cattery is fantastic!!!. I wasnt even expecting a photo of him when they dropped him off, that was a lovely surprise. and its brill that there is a regular update on facebook on how your cat is fitting in!
Lisa Miller 02 May 2010 at 18:21
Excellent cattery, this is the first time I have used a cattery and I will be recommending The Bowring Park to everyone. I was very impressed by how spacious and clean the accommodation was, how friendly and helpful Jon and his wife were and how settled and happy all the cats in their care were. They were obviously cat lovers and I really liked the fact that only two people would be caring for the cats rather than a large number of staff as my cats are nervous around new people. I really can't thank them enough for the level of service they provided. My cats shall be regular visitors
Salman Ahmed 09 April 2010 at 16:56
so happy with ur service......
